The Engelstad Scholars Program was established by the Engelstad Family Foundation through an endowment of $12.625 million to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in 2009, with the first set of scholars enrolled in 2010.
Students are placed with non-profit organizations to complete 100 hours of service each year. The scholarship awards $2,500 per semester for up to eight consecutive semesters to scholars who maintain their scholarship eligibility.
This group is for current scholars to log their service hours, track their impact, and reflect on their experiences.
